Many of you may have found when you’re preparing your own tax returns, that there’s a new form also, really, it’s more of an updated form an 8812, Is the credit for qualified children and dependents, it’s going to be a bit longer, and they’re going to ask you a bit more questions and also going to confirm information about who should be claiming this child. So if you’re claiming a child that is not a direct descendant of yours or a child that you’re not legally allowed to claim, you’re going to be asking a lot more questions here that you might find a little bit harder to take a child that’s not yours. Remember, if that child does not live with you for six months and one day by the IRS standards, that child is not your dependent.
